    Third time's the charm (!)

    Hi folks. London/Kent-based newbie here.

    Collecting my gen 2 factory lowered triple black XR this weekend, and very excited about it. Currently on a multistrada 1200 S but this will be my third XR.

    First gen 1 leaked engine oil everywhere 20 miles from brand new and was eventually replaced under warranty. Second gen 1 got T-boned 200 miles from brand new, put back on the road, then was nicked.

    So... Hoping this is third time lucky. Keep your fingers crossed!  :001:

    Thanks folks! I'll post a pic once the bike's landed. (Slightly contentious, it's got the lacquered-in red rim tape option so looks a bit bling).

    Please do post some pics.  I just ordered the same bike for a dealer but I havent seen one in person yet.  I have seen the Gen 1 version and the GS version in the dealer.
